They will discuss the history of French horror cinema, New French Extremity and its influence on the horror genre (including on their own recent films – Laugier’s Ghostland, screening at this year’s Motel X ) inside and outside of France. The discussion will be moderated by Miskatonic instructor Jon Towlson, Starburst critic and author of Subversive Horror.
